New accused in firearms case ‘stole’ P12, 200 pistol


A suspended procurement manager at Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) Sehunelo Khunou who allegedly stole a pistol worth approximately P12, 200 has been added to the charge sheet in the firearms case which involves former president Ian Khama among others.

Apart from the second accused Khama’s no show earlier today at Broadhurst Regional Court, the new development in the firearms case is the addition of Khunou as the fifth accused person to the charge sheet.

Khunou faces a single charge of stealing by a person employed in the public service. He appeared before court alongside first accused Isaac Kgosi, third accused Keabetswe Makgophe and fourth accused Victor Paledi. The quartet faces charges ranging from unlawful possession of firearms to aiding and abetting possession of a special firearm.
